I’ve started to accumulate a lot of relic cards for my player collections. Sometimes I get so wrapped up in my cutesy little series that I forget to diversify the card offerings here and show some of the non-ebay and non-trade stuff I’ve been snapping up over the years.

Since the season is over and […]

A Huge Collecting Benchmark

You know, when you start a player collection or a team collection, you never really plan to actually finish it. Sets can be finished. Retro player collections can be finished. Modern stuff is nearly impossible.

Of course, it helps to impose some restrictions. That’s why I don’t collect anything that has a print run lower […]

ROYGBIV – I’m Seeing Red

Baseball cards are wonderful things with a ton of variety. Some of that variety is from different manufacturers that employ techniques intended to set themselves apart from their competition. Some of that variety is from the same company attempting different product lines with themes intended to catch unique sub-sections of the collectors out there. Some, […]

Fighting a Losing Battle

Over the past couple months, I’ve been making a more concerted effort to get caught up on trade packages that I received over the past year (things got rough from Oct-Mar). I’m getting closer, but still several blog posts behind over three trade partners. That includes Kerry/Madding at Cards on Cards. I actually have two […]

A Warming Trade for an Annoying Cold

These past couple of days, I’ve been sick with a fun little cold, or flu (never really sure which). My wife had a friend visit us and I had to tuck away and isolate myself to avoid infecting either of them. That also meant I couldn’t join on the fun stuff they had planned. I […]

Award Winner? He IS the Award!

You probably heard this already, but right before the All-Star Game Major League Baseball announced that it was renaming the batting championship trophies for each league.

On the American League side, players will receive the Rod Carew Trophy, a man who ended his career with a .328 average and 7-time batting champion. That news generated […]

Pre-National Card Show Post (Shown Way After Actually Going To The National)

In June of 2014, I went to a card show in Rockford.

First, we’ll start with the Cubs team set I bought for $5. At the time I needed 2 cards, but now the rest are either trade bait, or they’ll come in handy if I choose another Cub to replace Starlin.

The kid […]

Double Birthday

There was a time when I could put together blog posts and offer up cards for trade on a semi-regular basis. I even briefly offered up weekly trade bait (which became less frequent). You can still find those posts over here, and many of those cards are still available – just ask. I really need […]

Guaranteed Winners (AKA “In The Black”)

I’ve been pretty inactive on this blog, as you can likely tell. I wish I could claim it was simply due to work taking over my life again, but it’s not true. I’m simply having a tough time finding the inspiration or motivation to write.

Baseball cards are still great, and I’m not currently planning […]

A Quick Trade Post Diversion

Before my involuntary hiatus, I made quite a few trades. I’m still not sure if I’m fully ready to start up the trading again, even though I’d love to, so for now I’ll have to make due with posting these older trades from over a year ago. Take this trade with Red Sox Fan in […]
